Bio and Links
Bio Photo Being a Find A Grave photo contributor is the most rewarding & constructive hobby I've ever taken up.. You have my consent to use any of the headstone or plot photos that I've loaded to memorials.. If I've created a memorial for a family member or friend of yours, I'm more than willing to transfer them to you.. I'm not looking to own high numbers of memorials, my intentions as a contributor are.. first.. to help document the cemeteries.. and secondly.. to help family members find their ancestors more easily.. So even if you don't necessarily fit the Find A Grave 'guidelines' for requesting a transfer, don't let that deter you from asking.. My feelings are that if you've taken the time to contact me with a correction or addition to a memorial, then you qualify...

I also want to give special mention to my Find A Grave friend, Kris Daugherty/OSU1988. Kris has been a tremendous help to me by providing me with cemetery records for Williams County. These records have enabled me to add my photos to memorials with confidence. As many of you know, sometimes we encounter stones that have been so worn down by time and weather that they are unreadable. Her records allow me the ability to cross check the photos with placement of the graves and to identify those unreadable stones. THANK YOU KRIS!!!

Also, I came across this poem on another contributor's profile and it perfectly conveys my thoughts and feelings as I walk the cemeteries.. so with his permission I've borrowed it from his page and here it is..

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

RE: Richad Burtenshaw #120390689
Trust this will help Sandi! If I can be of further help, don't hesitate.

Burtenshaw. At his home at Geary, Mich., March 30, 1898, of kidney trouble, after one week’s sickness, in his seventy-fifth year, Eld. Richard Burtenshaw.
Bro. Burtenshaw was born near Bridgton, Eng., and came to America when eighteen years of age. He entered the ministry in 1858, since which time he has devoted his life to the work of preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God. His labors extended over several states; at one time he labored with the great Dr. Litch of Philadelphia. He also preached in Canada, and in the Western States and Territories, traveling at his own charges. His labors have been attended with fruit that will appear in the day of the Lord Jesus. His life has been pure and his character stainless. He was a member of the Michigan A. C. Conference, and has been its president several times. Bro. B. was twice married, his first wife died years ago, leaving four children, two boys and two girls, now grown to manhood and womanhood. One daughter, Hattie, from North Carolina, hastened to her father’s bedside, arriving about twenty hours before he died, and one son, Rollo, was present at the funeral. Bro. B. came to Geary in 1891, and was joined in marriage to Sr. Sarah Pearson, a thorough Adventist. Since that time he has been a member of the A. C. church of Victor, and its pastor for seven years, refusing to take any salary. Four weeks before his death he attended the A. C. Conference at Grand Rapids, Mich., with the writer, and preached a grand sermon on immortality. I called to see him during his sickness and he said he felt he had preached his last sermon, but was content to sleep and was all right and safe in the Lord, and requested me to preach his funeral sermon from 2 Pet. 3:14, and to tell the people all about it, and that we know that we are right because we have God’s word for it and that he fell asleep in Jesus in the faith. He was conscious to the last. Only a few hours before he died, though weak, he sang a hymn, “Am I a soldier of the cross,” then peacefully fell asleep. The funeral was held at the U[united] B[rethren] church, April 1, with a large congregation of all classes and denominations, this being the first funeral of a minister at this place. So we laid him to rest until Jesus comes. He leaves a faithful and loving wife, four children and a large circle of friends and believers to mourn the loss. He sleeps in Jesus. Good-by Bro. Burenshaw, for a little while. Soon the Life-Giver will come and we shall greet you on the other shore.
W. G. VanBurger

Resolutions of the A. C. Church of Victor, Mich.
Whereas, Death has entered our church and taken from us our Pastor, Richard Burtenshaw, and
Whereas, The intimate association held by the Advent Christian church of Victor, Mich., has been severed, therefore
Resolved, That in the death our our brother the church has lost a true friend, and one who for seven years has been our pastor, shunning not to faithfully declare all the counsel of God, and that we extend our sympathy to the wife and children in their bereavement, trusting that when Jesus comes the family reunion may be complete; and further,
Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be presented to the family, that they be spread on the church records and a copy sent to the World’s Crisis for publication.

Notes:
Jacob Kintigh
The mill became an important unit in the community. Sometime in the early 1850's it was acquired by Simon Kint who, with others of his family, operated the mill for several years. Local residents, still
living, recall its being in operation as late as 1890. Indiana 1852 Jacob Kintigh came to the area with his family from Defiance County, Ohio. It is believed that Jacob Kintigh and Simon Kint were related by Marriage. Jacob Kintigh's first wife was Margaret Kint. Jacob Kintigh Acquired about eighty acres and established a home near the mill site. Jacob Kintigh had a singularly active career. He was born in Westmorland County, Pennsylvania in 1811. He was married to Margaret Kent and to them seven children were born. Three children, Isaac, Cyrus and Mary Ann, were born in Pennsylvania. Indiana 1836 the family moved to Defiance County,Ohio, near Evansport where Jacob operated a cooper shop and distillery. It was here that four additional children were born. George, Sarah, Hannah and Jacob, and where the wife and mother, Margaret, died in 1850. Jacob subsequently married Elizabeth Fox in 1851, and early in 1852 the family moved to Northwest Township, where they erected the familiar house that was to remain as a landmark for many years. It was here that their son, John, was born in 1852. Indiana 1853 Jacob started a general store in parlor of their home. Indiana 1854 he erected an ashery for the production of lye which was used in the making of soap. Indiana 1856 he erected a store building across the road from his house where he continued to operate the business until 1866. The store became an important unit in the community center which included the sawmill, the ashery, a Blacksmith shop. The citizens without money could take their ashes to him and being weighed with steelyards could get goods from his in exchange. This was a great accommodation to the neighborhood. The District School Number 7 and a Cemetery. Jacob and his family is probably buried in the cemetery. Indiana 1866 Jacob moved to Billings town, a community center near the corner of the state of Ohio. Here he resumed his mercantile business. Indiana 1869 the store and house were rebuilt, the store was assigned to their son George, and Jacob and his wife, Elizabeth, lived in retirement until their deaths, Jacob in 1881 and Elizabeth in 1892. The children of Jacob and Margaret Kintigh had reached adult stature when their father and his second wife, Elizabeth, came to Northwest Township,. Some married and established home for themselves in the community. It is not known if George and Jacob Kintigh ever married. Isaac Kintigh first Married Catherine Gardner, daughter of Isaac and Sarah Gardner. Cyrus first married Mary Jane Kritcher, Mary Ann became the wife of John Gardner, Sarah married Daniel Folk and Hannah became the wife of William Coon.
Isaac and Catherine Kintigh established their first home on his farm, later known as the Reese farm.

Notes: (con't)
They reared two daughters, Emily Ann and Sarah. Unfortunately, Catherine died shortly after the birth of Sarah in 1862. Indiana 1864 Isaac married Rebecca Beaver, daughter of Adam and Elizabeth Beaver. They resided but temporarily on his farm, moving to his father's farm where their first child, C. Jacob was born in 1865. They resided on the home farm until 1867 when they again took residence on their own farm. Here their second child, Elsie Catherine, was born in 1868. Isaac sold his farm in 1871 to James Reese and bought the farm of Rebecca's father, Adam Beaver, located in Camden Township, Hillsdale County, Michigan. Here a daughter, Ida Bell was born in 1871. Ida Bell Kintigh is the grandmother to James O Taylor, son to Harmon J. Taylor. The family Ida Bell Kintigh, lived on the Beaver farm until 1874 when they exchanged their home for the front forty acres of the Anson Smith farm which laid across the road from the Church of God. Here a son, George W. Kintigh was born in 1874. They resided on the Smith farm but a brief time when they sold it 1875 and bought the original Kintigh homestead which has father had vacated in 1866. Here they resumed their residence and remained until the death of Isaac in 1908. Four more children were born to Isaac and Rebecca on the old home acres, Maudie Dell, born in 1878, Irvin D. born in 1879, Devilla Vince in 1883, and another boy who died in infancy. Following the death of Isaac in 1908, the estate was settled and the farm was acquired by Fred Brown and title to the historic farm passed from the Kintigh family. Rebecca established a home in Camden Township, where she resided until her death in 1930. C. Jacob ll, eldest child of Isaac and Rebecca, married Margaret Ansley, daughter of Edward and Mary Catherine Ansley. They established their first home in the local area and had four children, Lottie born 1886, Glen in 1888, Faye and Grace. Only Lottie and Glen survived to adult stature. Following the example of his father-in-law, Edward Ansley, Jacob Kintigh embarked in the grain threshing business. Indiana 1891 he purchased a new steam traction engine, taking delivery at the railroad in Montpelier, Ohio. It is related that the proud young man began the day with enthusiastic anticipation, promising to announce his approach to the family home by the tooting of his whistle. Unfortunately, the whistle was not to be heard. Disaster struck less than one mile from their destination. On a narrow grade in the road, Jacob misjudged his course in the darkness and the engine slipped sidewise and tipped over on its side. Dismay ensued, and briefly, Jacob was a worried young man. However with the help of cooperative neighbors, the engine was righted, the engine company helped with the repairs, and Jacob was soon well established at his chosen occupation. Unfortunately, Jacob's career was of short duration. Ill health plagued him, and he succumbed in 1898 a relatively young man. Lottie Kintigh, daughter of C. Jacob and Margaret, became the wife of Roy Cope. Her brother, Glen, married Myrta Kurtz, daughter of Frederick and Lelah (Schell) Kurtz. George, Irvin and Vince Kintigh, younger brothers of Jacob, aided by their father, Isaac, assumed management of the business established by their brother and proceeded to make it a career, continuing to operate in the threshing field for several years. Emily Ann Kintigh, daughter of Isaac and Catherine, became the wife of W. Benjamin Ansley who was one of a family of threshers from Bridgewater Township,. Cyrus Kintigh, second son of Jacob and Margaret Kintigh, was first married to Mary Jane Kritcher on November 29, 1857. They lived on his father's farm through 1860 when Mary Jane died. To Cyrus and Mary Jane two daughters were born Ella and another who died in infancy. Following the death of his wife, Cyrus made his home with his parents until 1863 when he married Margaret Delinger. To them a daughter, Clara, was born. Margaret lived but Three years after their Marriage and their daughter was to live but six years. Again Cyrus Resumed living with his parents, who, in 1866, had moved to Billingstown and established a general store. Cyrus lived with his parents until 1870 when he married Sarah Shook. At about this time, Cyrus purchased the Kintigh store from his brother, George who had acquired the business from their father, Jacob. George Kintigh died in 1871 at the age of 30 years. Sarah lived but one year after her marriage to Cyrus. He then married his forth wife, Louisa Kimmel, and they established their home in the store building. Later, a house was erected adjacent to the store building and here they resided for a time. Subsequently, he acquired a farm just north and a short distance east of the Billingstown site. they resided here during their final years. Cyrus died in 1900, and Louisa survived until 1928. They had reared two daughters, Lourinda B. 1874, probably at or near the store, who eventually became the wife of Amos Keys and Cynthia Ann 1884, on doubt, at the final home site of her parents on the farm. She became the wife of Orson Easterday. The life of Cynthia Kintigh Easterday was relatively short. She succumbed in 1910, leaving three small children Duane L. 1903, Harley B. 1906 and Cynthia Marie 1908. The ghost town of Kintightown was located in section 17, Northwest Township, Williams County, Ohio Jacob Kintigh succeeded Charles Hall and Orin Fenton in the mercantile business in the vicinity of Billingstown in Northwest Township,. Hall and Fenton succeeded William B. Billings. Kintigh kept a well patronized county store for many years. Indiana 1854 Jacob Kintigh built an ashery at "Kintightown". About the same time Kintigh also began selling goods from his home. Indiana the beginning, Kintigh sold his goods by weight using a "steelyard". Indiana about 1856, he built a small store building in which he could sell a larger stock of goods. Area residents could bring their ashes to Kintigh and get goods in exchange from the store. Pearl ash manufactured by
Notes: (con't)
Kintigh was carted to Defiance. Indiana 1866 Jacob was succeeded in his store and ashery by his son George. Upon George's death his brother Cyrus took over the store, however he sold it back to his father. Kintightown's store closed in the late 1870's Returning, in retrospect, to the Kintigh town area, the United Brethren Church, erected in 1882, was located on a bit of the Jacob Kintigh estate which was then owned by his son Isaac. The Church was erected under the supervision of Alfred L. Allman, assisted financially by his father in law John L. Rice, and manually by his brothers in law, Richard and Hiram Rice, and by other local craftsmen. Richard Rice and his younger brother, Kay, later became engaged in the furniture and undertaking business in Camden, Michigan. They operated there for many years. The water powered sawmill, established in 1845 by Daniel Smith and Alpheus Petty, continued in operation for many years, mainly under the management of members of the Kint family. Eventually the property, including the land area of eighty acres, was acquired by Henry Zuver, a Michigan resident. The operation of the sawmill, during the last years of its existence, was under the management of Clem Rigel man. James Daniels, then a youth of seventeen years, worked for Mr. Rigel man, his brother in law, assisting in the operation of the sawmill. James Daniels has related about some of his jobs. One was the sawing of pickets used for farmyard fences. Another job was the fashioning of runners for log boats which were used for transporting logs in the woods. The perpendicular action of the water powered saw was adapted for that job. Operation of the mill was discontinued in the early 1890's, the pond was drained and the area was returned to agricultural use. Henry Zuver never resided on the property but his daughter, Mary and husband Carley Southwell, lived on the Farm for many years and which she eventually inherited. Mary and Carley reared six children Ernest, Jesse, John, Elmer, Vina and Lelah. William B. Kintigh, Younger brother of Jacob, and his wife Susannah, acquired eighty acres from his brother. This property fronted on the northern most east west road in Ohio which parallels the state line. They reared eight children Phares G., Mary Margaret, William Cullen, John B., Elmer E., Nellie and Grant S. This fine family was to become an outstanding unit in the local community. Three of the boys, Phares, Cullen and Grant, became school teachers and served in the local rural school. Most of the family became farmers in the area, reared families, and participated actively in the local society. Their status was regarded as one of leadership. Their energy seemed boundless and their achievement noteworthy. William B. Kintigh became a widower in 1887, but he and his daughter Nellie continued to reside on the farm until his death in 1898. Nellie then married William Easterday, and the homestead was acquired by the eldest son, Phares, who then occupied the farm and lived there for his remaining years. Phares Kintigh first married Phebe Allman, Daughter of Charles and Mary Ann Allman, and to them born four children Bertha, Ivin, Ray and Lola. Phebe died in 1889 at the birth of their daughter, Lola, and the responsibilities of the household fell largely upon the youthful shoulders of Bertha who was the eldest child. Phares married Allagora Frary (Jinks) in 1892. To them was born a daughter, Helena C. 1899. During his early years at farming, Phares owned and occupied forty acres known as the Aaron Kint farm. Indiana 1883 he acquired the balance of the eighty acres which was previously owned by William Coon. Following the death of Phares Kintigh in 1918, the homestead eighty acres was acquired by Olin Skinner, son of Fremont Skinner and grandson of the pioneer, George Skinner. He too, was to live out his remaining years on that farm. Across the road from the Kintigh farm laid the farm of Anson Smith, son of Daniel Smith who, with his wife Esther (shay) and their growing family, migrated from New York State in the Nineteenth Century and settled in Bridgewater Township, Williams County, Ohio. Daniel and Esther Smith reared eleven children Anson, Asa, William, Elvira, Nancy, Evaline, Mary, Harriet, Hester and Lester. Most of them were to marry, establish homes and become the forebears of an extensive cross section of the local populace, perpetuating the family blood lines unto the modern ere ad infinitum.

Information copied from "The County of Williams", pages 451 and 452: "Irvin D. Kintigh is one of the progressive young farmers of Northwest township and is a representative of one of the well-known pioneer families of this section of the Buckeye State. He was born on the homestead farm, in Northwest township, this county, on the 31st of December, 1880, and is a son of Isaac and Rebecca (Beaver) Kintigh, residents of Northwest township. The former was born in Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, on the 10th of april, 1831, being a son of Jacob and Margaret (Kent) Kintigh, who likewise was born in the old Keystone State, whence Jacob removed with his family to Ohio in 1834, first settling in Definace county, and in 1852 taking up his residence on a tract of wild land in Northwest township, Williams county, where he developed a good farm, continuing his residence in Northwest township until his death, which occurred in April, 1881. Jacob Kintigh's first wife died in this county and he later married Miss Elizabeth Kent, who also was born in Pennsylvania, and died in Williams county, on the 27th of February, 1892. Six children were born of the first marriage, namely: Isaac, Cyrus, Mary

Notes: (con't)
ann, George, Sarah and Hannah M., and one son, John W., represented the offspring of the second union. Isaac Kintigh is one of the progressive farmers and honored citizens of Northwest township, and he continues to reside on the old homestead which has been his home for fifty-three years. In politics he is a conservative Republican, and his religious faith is that of the Church of God. He has been twice married, his first wife having died in 1862, after which he wedded Miss Rebecca Beaver, of Hillsdale county, Mich. Of his eight children by his second wife, five are living namely: Elsie, Ida, George, Irvin D., and Vincent. The children who were born of the first marriage were Emily Ann and Sarah Jane, the latter being deceased.

RE: Hi
Hi there,
Sorry its taken me so long to get back to you. But here I am.

Did you see this for Rebecca, Dr. Blair's mother? There is no cemetery, so I'm not sure how one is able to list them without...

Birth: Nov. 15, 1815
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jun. 21, 1897
Ohio, USA

Rebecca Goodrich is born in Morris Twp, Washington Co PA and dies in Bridgewater Twp, Williams Co, Ohio. I have been unable to locate a specific burial place, but I have the probate and will of her husband and obits. Their son, Blair Hagerty, was a very well known and respected doctor who also served during the Civil War. The estate is left penniless at their deaths so headstones may not have been ordered.

NWpioneer (#46896368) Northwestpioneer@yahoo.com sent me a few edits on Blair and Anna, he/she probably sent me the edits linking Sarah Alice Newcomer Hagerty (#159684033) being his wife as well. I suppose Sarah Alice could be a 2nd wife. I went through all of my books but didn't find any other Rebecca's. Maybe Michelle Hubenschmidt or NWpioneer would be able to help them?

Yes, I got my mother moved before I left in September. I had her house fixed up and on the market also, it sold for asking price 2 months later, thank the Lord!! She is in the condos down the street from Millers Supermarket in Montpelier. So far she is happy and more active with my cousins!! I know my brother is probably upset that I moved her as I'm sure he doesn't see anyone.

Not much going on here. How was your winter? How are your kids doing?

RE: Daniels memorials
Sandi,
Thanks so much! I am still doing research on this branch of the family, but I do have information on additional children born to Sylvester & Sarah. Apparently I have a lot of ancestors who were from Ohio, so I may be contacting you again.

Thanks again,

Sandy Sager
